white women here in the state of ohio. back in 2008, remember, senator obama won ohio then, he only got 47% of the white women vote. these are middle class women, a lot of them are working women, some of them have been laid off the last four years, some of them have had their husbands laid off the last four years. the 47% remark, i had a woman come up to me in michigan and talk about this, i met several in ohio today, it offended them. some have had to ask for food stamps or other government assistance over the past several years. it offended them and makes them think romney doesn't understand their every day struggles of getting the kids off to school, paying the bills. that is still a warning sign here. he's making progress but if i had to put one thing on a bill board and say to win the election, romney better learn to deal with this, it would be that. the blowback from the 47%, especially among middle class women. >> gloria, you say polls are showing suburban women are keyed to a romney win at this point. >> those aren't mutually exclusive. when you look at the poll, for example, on

. senator rob portman, was he a tougher debater in those practice sessions than president obama turned out to be? >> senator portman is very effective. i think president obama and i both have a good chance to describe our respective views as to how we'd do a better job. and i, frankly, think i benefited from the fact that rather than having people learn about me from ads prepared by my opposition, they got to actually hear what i would do for myself. and i think that helped me. i think the president also got to lay out his plans and people were able to make a comparison. but as for rob portman, he's a pretty effective guy. >> were you surprised by the president's performance? >> well, i actually thought he described pretty appropriately and pretty effectively his policies. i just happened to disagree with those policies. i mean, when we talked about the economy, he really is not proposing anything he hasn't talked about for the last four years, which is another stimulus, hiring more government workers, picking winners and losers in industries that he favors, raising taxes. these are ideas

attacking joe biden and barack obama on that." wolf, i talked to senator jack reed, obama ally in the senate. i asked him, you know, how should biden respond when this issue comes up? he said, look, we should broaden the story line about libya. we didn't send ground troops in. we used air strikes. we brought in our nato partners and talk about the positive ways the obama administration handled libya and that biden should point out that paul ryan's most recent budget in the house called for reductions in spending to the state department and he said that could jeopardize u.s. security and that biden should point that out. >> we know that half of the debate is supposed to be on foreign policy, national security. the other half on domestic issues. right now they're introducing the wives of the candidates. soledad, tell our viewers what you're seeing. >> that's right. the commissioner has been really running through the program as they head up through the start of the debate. interesting difference between the two wives. very different women, of course. >> very different, primarily because we do

's true he runs as such. he's also a liberal senator who is stuck to the hip to the obama administration roar. so on stimulus, on obamacare, and this is a state that is not necessarily overly liberal, in fact, it's conservative in many ways. they see this opportunity, they have this young man who is relatively new to politics, very charismatic, he's been a big fundraiser and he's already made up a lot of ground. at one point josh mandel was down 17 points in the polls. the fact some of them now has him ahead shows there's a real openness out there in ohio voters to change. >> what is really interesting about the outside groups, kim, is they are hanging barack obama's policies around sherrod brown's neck and i think that will have something to do with what happens in ohio at the presidential level. >> all right, dan. we have to take one more break. when we come back, hits and misses of the week. ... >> paul: time for hits and misses. week. kimberly restraining orders sell first for you. >> this is hit for david sea gull who is ceo of west gate new york, sent a letter to employees if obama

use today say, walk softly, talk softly but carry a big stick. senator obama likes to talk loudly. >> senator mccai this is the guy who sang bomb, bomb, bomb iran. who called for the annihilation of north korea. >> all right. it's a delicate line these candidates will have to walk next week with a live studio audience right near them. >> sure. it just changes the vibe completely because you know and i know that they don't have any problem kind of challenging you, challenging a reporter, somebody that they're familiar with. they can be really tough on you and say, hey, that's not true. they don't have a problem shouting you down. but if you have a bunch of undecided voters watching you, there's a couple things. first of all, you can't be too hot. you can't be too aggressive because that vibe is bad in the room. second of all, all the theatrics of it for them. which is the you have to talk to them and you have to seem like you're relating to them. so i think it adds a whole other level of performance if you will to what they're saying. it's also very hard to evade a question that co

with the seat held by retiring senator joe lieberman. connecticut hasn't elected a republican to the senate in three decades and mitt romney is running well behind president obama there, why is this race so close? we're back with dan henninger, matt, and mary anastasia o'grady. you were there for the republican primary, why is she doing so well? >> she's a marketing specialist and manage today rebrand herself for the campaign. she lost terribly. >> 12 points. >> spent 50 million dollars and got nowhere. this time around she saw what her vulnerabilities were, people saw her as overly aggressive and a wrestling promoter and turning herself using ads into a grandmotherly-- >> and people out of the ring, is that it. >> pretty much. and she has a very controlled message and managed to go on-- >> what is she running on, what is her message? >> her message is fairly negative. on the positive side i was in business, i bring this experience. >> i'm an outsider, not part of congress. >> right. >> i can shake it up. >> exactly, the reason why she's ahead here, because she starting in august went very

house senate and president and barack obama's first term. that's because it would require them to report to the government the women they have on their payroll, the men have on that there'll come how much they pay both groups. and that's an attempt of a government should try to equalize pay between groups of women and groups of men. rather than as the law holds right now, men and women in comparable jobs in the same job. so what they're trying to do is have equal pay for equal work, not equal pay for equal work, which is two very different things. there's no reason why groups of women and groups of men in the same firm should be paid the same if they have radically different jobs. look at exxon, for example, that is a group of men and oil drilling activities. it's a dirty dangerous job. you could not get me to do. you have to pay people a lot to risked their lives doing that kind of work. exxon has a group of women in communications, assistant jobs, publications. there's no reason these two groups should be necessarily paid the same. but the paycheck benefit would be moving toward requir

all the different times as a senator, a vp, that he's worked specifically with republicans to get things done. i think that's where obama differentiates himself also. i think romney and ryan are going too much partisanship. i think the one who wins the independent is a candidate. i'm really going to work with people and i've done it as vp, president and senator. >> i so hope we get to see biden, tomorrow. joe, if you're listening, be yourself. give us some jokes. give us some off color. >> i don't think he can. >> give us some gaffes. >> people like joe biden. >> they do. >> america likes joe biden. >> i like joe biden. >> by the way, joe six-pack white dudes who watch football like joe biden. >> even my dad likes joe biden. we're out of time. thanks so much. another brilliant conversation. i want to thank wolf blitzer for letting us hang out in his "the situation room." now back to wolf. >> excellent unsolicited advice pete and company. thanks very much. >>> the republican vice presidential hopeful paul ryan sat down exclusively with cnn. up next, how his hunting routine might he

president obama. >> but a fellow republican, senator rand paul, tells cnn that romney's approach is wrong, that more u.s. intervention in the mideast would not be effective, that our wars have fared poorly. in your opinion, what is the role of the u.s. in this region? >> first of all, we have to determine, is this region important to us? and the answer definitely is yes. because of our allies in the region from nato ally turkey which is under fire right now from syria to israel that's constantly being threatened to our gulf allies. secondly, energy. thirdly, this is the transportation and geographic hub of eurasia. fourthly, it's the cradle of civilizations in religions, it's part of our heritage. we can't walk away from the middle east, but it's a very tough, it's a very dangerous and it's a very turbulent region. and we take risks in being out there. >> former u.s. ambassador to iraq and turkey, jim jeffrey, thank you. >> thank you. >>> tens of thousands may have been given the contaminated steroid injections that are blamed for a deadly meningitis outbreak, but some say they saw it com

. rick santorum, the former senator from pennsylvania well known and well respected among social conservatives. mitt romney has -- you know, the campaign, again, saying no. nothing has changed. the obama campaign is trying to, you know, portrait mitt romney as a flip-flopper, and they also go back and foint to, you know, his philosophy or his stance on abortion back when he was governor of massachusetts. that's different from now, fred. >> there's also a chance that the next president will select at least one supreme court justice. right now the court is evenly split on the issue of abortion. is romney downplaying the importance of abortion rights over the next four years? >> good question, because, yes, most likely the next president, be it president obama or mitt romney, as the first-term president will have at least one, maybe two supreme court picks to make. it is interesting here because, you know, besides what the campaigns are saying, you're seeing a lot of independent groups like planned parenthood on one side and seeing social conservatives on the other side playing this
